pre-session 57.

Greetings, everyone. I wanted to put the rubbery tentacles out there to leech some thoughts from your mind. How'd you feel about the game on Saturday? Just general information gathering. What did you like, what did you hate? How can I make the last few games sparkle?

Also, I'm thinking about June 16th for the next game. Does that work? My weekends are pretty booked in June, what with school and work.

And now, a little something that didn't make it into the game on Saturday:

The Blasted Yard. Like a scene from Hell itself, the interior of the crater is a dry, cracked yard of uneven volcanic rock. A hot, dry stench fills the air, burning the inside of your nose and mouth. At the center of this area, stands a black tower glistening with the dull sheen of iron. The walls of the crater rise up steeply about 200 feet into the air. The open sky is viewable overhead, but clouds are quickly forming.

(Spot DC 5). The tower is made of black iron reinforced with adamantine.

1. The Door. At the base of the black tower stands an adamantine door. It is carved in breathtaking detail, depicting the coming of a cloaked figure from a building in the sky. Rays silhouette the figure, and there are thousands of kneeling people on the ground.

Anyone man enough for a Friday? Or the 9th or 23rd?

Personally I liked the puzzle a great deal, except for that last step where there was a bit too much ambiguity that made it stretch much further than it could have. I did like the tenseness knowing that we only had a very limited number of tries to get it right without it being a chance of failure through death in battle.

The 9th won't work for me.

I liked the puzzle, it was something different and creative. I just didn't like how much time we spent on it. Also, finally, failing a saving throw worked out for me, which was nice for a change.
